Photos: Memory Forms and Further Forms

The following are two sets of self portraits I took while on San Juan Island last month. This was the first time I created a low-budget photography studio, and the first time I ritualized photography concerning the physical human body as the main theme/subject. As explored below in Memory forms, movement accompanied each of the forms (or poses) that I created and worked through. The forms themselves remain secret, a language that was used to inform the project but not define the output to the external viewers.

In the second sequence, Further Forms, I have created various forms of amalgamations of the Memory Forms, using some fairly basic blending techniques. The resulting abstract forms were the result of an inquiry on the forms within photography’s editing process.

GIFs Wrap-Up for the Year

I have just posted a large collection of large GIFs, created to round out the final days of the calendar year. This bundle, as I’m calling it, contains the aquatic and the natural, continued. It is a gentle extension of the most recent GIFs posted recently.

In the near future, I intend to create more abstract video works that will be shared in video form. This includes GIF images, but displayed in repetition. I hope that this method will make the works more accessible and retain their size and scope. This work will most likely commence in early 2021.

A Gazillion GIFs 1

A new push on my end has resulted in a flurry of fun-filled GIF images. Still moving. Still defunct as a format. These are great time consumers, capable of creatively getting me into the body of the footage I record. This is the artful way that screams in joy and terror at once.

As per the GIFs page, here are the latest offerings:

Manzanita Fire

Manzanita Sunset

Seaside Storm

Seahurst Park

I was able to churn these out quickly and enjoyably. I have a lot of footage with a new lens that will be posted soon, as well.

Stay liquid.
